    Thanks everyone that had a look but I have found what I needed and solved the problem, what I would like but if any one can help is a freeware program to convert DVDs to play on my iPAQ.

    Regards

    I'm on the PalmOS side of things, so I doubt the links in my signature will help. Check them out anyway.

    you need CorePlayer - the aac codec used to be part of TPCMP but since they brought it out as a commercial product, the download for the aac codec is not so easy to find. However CorePlayer contains this code.

    You can buy coreplayer here.....

    Or use TPCMP and download the AAC codec! :)
    (TPCMP used to be Beta Player, so download and install the Beta Player Codec for AAC and it'll work just fine with TCPMP) HERE>>> http://www.rarewares.org/aac-decoders.php#betaplayer-aac

    PocketMusic offers AAC codec support as well - but not in the freeware version. I think it costs about $10.

    Welcome to Brighthand, magician-hump, although this thread is about 4 months old.

    Y'know, I'm curious.

    My understanding is that the only "official" encoder/source of AAC audio is Apple's iTunes site. And part of the (DRM enforced) agreement when you purchase AAC files is that they'll only play on a limited number (5, I think) of "licensed" machines - PCs, iPods, PDAs, whatever. And the only way to "activate" any given machine is to allow iTunes to communicate with the AAC player it runs.

    So ... aside from "piracy" activities that would violate the DRM mechanisms ... how exactly would you get a PPC to play AAC audio? Is my thinking of the whole situation wrong?

    I believe that the TCPMP AAC codec will only play non-DRMed audio.

    And the DRMed AACs? They'll certainly play on an iPod, iPhone, or other iToy. Anywhere else, like a (non-"i") PDA?

    Apple's FairPlay DRM will only play on computers or Apple hardware. To play them on any other mobile device, you need to circumvent it, for instance by burning to CD and re-ripping.
